Today is a sad day in the world. By now you have surely heard of the Colorado shootings at the opening of Batman: Dark Knight Rises. If not, there is a rundown here. It is personally scary for me, because these victims were nerds and comic fans like me and my family. This could have been a movie I was attending. My son could be without a father today if events were different. I just want to leave you with this, from Sci-Fi icon George Takei’s Facebook.
“Many victims of today’s tragedy were fans of science fiction/fantasy. They stood in line to be the first to see, to be inspired, and to escape. As a community of dreamers, we mourn this terrible tragedy and the senseless taking of innocent life.”
